10 Shocking Benefits of Drinking Whiskey + Songs That Will Raise Your Glass

Country music fans love drinking whiskey, which mostly explains the inextricable link between whiskey and whiskey-themed country music.

Before we move too quickly. Mom and dad, relax.  

Drinking whiskey in moderation actually has some surprising health benefits and when paired with the perfect playlist, you really can’t go wrong.

Country fans, Cody Alan wants to make a special 2019 toast to your good health.

Here’s the skinny:

10. Weight Loss Aid.

Whiskey is low carb. The 'American Society for Clinical Nutrition' published a study in 1991 that suggested that moderate intake increases energy and decreases the desire for sugar (sucrose) intake. If you're counting your calories, a shot of whiskey is 64. So put down that Michelob and have a shot of Wild Turkey instead.

9. Cancer Prevention.

Whiskey has a high concentration of ellagic acid which acts as a powerful antioxidant. 

8. Stroke Prevention.

Whiskey has awesome blood thinning properties. So, remember this (almost) rhyme: A daily shot can lower your risk of clots. 

7. Whiskey treats the common cold.

Two words: Hot Toddy.

Whiskey acts as a decongestant by dilating blood vessels. Honey and lemon and herbal tea have anesthetic properties that can loosen music.

6. Stress Relief.

Whiskey has a sedative property that can help with anxiety and aid in sleep, making it the perfect nightcap for the high energy and high anxiety country fans.

5. Lowers Risk of Dementia

Not to be confused with drinking too much whiskey which will help you to totally forget the night before. Studies published by the 'National Center for Biotechnology Information' concluded that drinking 1 to 6 drinks weekly could lower your risk of dementia over and above avoiding alcohol completely.

4. Digestion

Need we say more. 

3. Helps prevent Diabetes

MODERATE amounts of alcohol can help your body regulate insulin.

2. Perfect liquid to soothing a sore throat or a toothache.

Whiskey has an antiseptic property that can aid in a sore throat or can help minimize the pain associated with a toothache.

1. Prolonged lifespan

The Research Society on Alcoholism found that older adult drinkers had an overall high mortality rate than heavy drinkers as well as non-drinkers.
